It has been decades since the Dragačevo Trumpet Festival has become one of the most visited events of the entire national folk art in Serbia and the unique competition of folk trumpet orchestras. It is a trumpet celebration, and a celebration of Serbian tradition that we have been cherishing for 58 years already, through rich program content.
For the inhabitants of Dragačevo, the trumpet festival is much more than just a tourist attraction. It is an opportunity to accommodate old and new friends in their homes. The host of Dragačevo will not welcome you without a strong handshake, hot brandy and good snacks.
It was precisely among these people that the idea of festivity gathering was born. And the soul of the festival is its people, trumpeters, trumpet masters who we recognize at the first sound. Since1961, until today.
This year, Dragačevo Trumpet Festival will be held for the 58th time, from August the 9th until the 12th. In a few days of the gathering, a small town in the heart of Serbia becomes bigger and richer by hundreds and hundreds of thousands of festival friends, eager for good entertainment and best trumpet music.
The best athletes, the most famous actors, both foreign and domestic, best poets, painters, sculptors, journalists, photographers, politicians, ambassadors, the biggest singing stars have been gathering in Guča.
That’s why this year, regardless of the part of the globe we come from, we will all be glad to listen to the magic produced by the trumpet, because it fails to sound as good as in Guča anywhere.
In addition to the already traditional competition of young and senior orchestras, the inevitable parade of the participants in the program, traditional competition of men – all-around national competition, the competition for the most beautiful folk costume and the best comedy toast, performances of the best cultural artistic societies, Guča will also echo with the inevitable sounds of the trumpet. Anf not just any sounds, but the sounds of the greatest trumpet names, winners, giants, masters of trumpets such as Dejan Petrović, Dejan Lazarević, Saša Krstić, Boban Marković, Ekrem Mamutović…
